Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm skeptical, entrepreneurial, and not to be taken too
I aim to be as sarcastic as a jaded private detective in a pulpy
noir movie. I'm probably too kind and shy to pull it off. I'm
bitter and tired, but I'm very driven and dedicated.
I'm someone who seeks out interesting things with an increasingly
narrow and esoteric definition of interesting. I have no patience
for inanity, I abhor boredom and I rarely feel like talking about
my day for more than five minutes.
I have a terrible, acrid sense of humor. I default to communicating
in a mess of double meanings, sarcasm, partial sarcasm, and banter.
I don't like it when people take things I don't mean
I can't hold a conversation alone and can barely handle my half.
Unless I feel like talking about game design, level design, HCI,
philosophy, or why I like cocktails where you can taste the
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love to learn and I'm very self-motivated.
I play a lot of video games, hate a lot of video games, and plan to
work somewhere in the gaming industry. I am not your typical
I'm learning to draw and program, I want to be a versatile
developer but I'm most interested in the conceptual design of
games. I'm interested in games and interactivity academically and I
write about games from that perspective. I'm especially interested
in the use of games to study learning and separately their
applications in education.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Bothering to cook. I'm not really a great cook, but I frequently go
out of my way to cook something I've never made before. I behave
this way in most aspects of my life.

Music: The Postal Service, probably because of nostalgia. There are
not too many others to list (I used to have them listed) I just
didn't like having my profile be one third music by length.
Food: I'm a very healthy eater, most of the time my food is simple,
cheap, and unembellished. I sometimes cook a fancy stir-fry and I
like pumpkin pie. I drink tea by the pot and love the taste of
coffee. I like beer, wine, whiskey, and classic cocktails.
Video games: Portal
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There are not six no matter how I look at it. This section bothers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The chance for systems, of all kinds, to screw people over for no
reason. Every time I succeed at something, particularly things that
are required of me for social reasons, I try and think of the
likelihood that everyone presented with the same task will succeed.
I do this most importantly with education systems and other
bureaucratic structures, and most often with video games.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Every time I watch the scene in GITS:SAC:SSS where Togusa is about
to shoot himself I consistently feel tears welling up as his
daughter starts running.
I also get teary whenever I read The Last Question by Isaac Asimov,
especially since hyperspace isn't a very reassuring solution to the
problem of entropy. Still, the line "And there was light," makes my
whole body feel very heavy.
It's really a shame I can't seem to actually cry anymore, I seem to
have a lot of opportunities.
